This two-bedroom unit at Edgewood's Arizona Lofts, a pioneering adaptive-reuse project from 2003, epitomizes industrial chic and just might make a millennial's dreams of 21-foot ceilings come true. At 1,354 square feet, it's a pleasing juxtaposition of natural light, soft colors and modern-style fixtures against harsher aspects like the metal staircase, corrugated-steel ceiling and concrete floors. Huge living-room windows spy a private patio outside, while elsewhere the community boasts two saltwater pools and a rooftop deck. The location is still rather tucked away, though Ration & Dram restaurant and MARTA trains are within an easy-breezy walk, with commercial districts in Candler Park and Kirkwood a doable hike away. The asking price of $224,000 (plus a sane HOA fee of $264, per Zillow) could go a long way in discrediting the idea that living in Atlanta isn't affordable anymore.
